Red Sun Comics & Collectables Store Opening 9th Of October!!!

Hey guys and gals. The time is almost upon us for my new superstore "Red Sun Comics & Collectables" to open. We launch on October 9th at 9am with guests signing at 10am. We have Jeremy Bulloch (original star Wars trilogy Boba Fett), Warwick Davis (Wicket in Return of the Jedi, Willow and Harry Potter) and Marvel, DC and 2000AD artist Lee Townsend attending. Prices will be up on the flyers and posters next week but should range from £10 to £15 per autograph. We'll also not only have our awesome mascot superhero "The Red Sun" in attendance (images from the recent Essex Chronicle photo shoot below) but also the fantastic guys from the 501st UK Garrison costuming group who will be attending in numerous Star Wars and movie costumes (including a stunning life-size remote R2-D2!).

We have two competitions on the day which are "Best costumed customer" and "best new superhero drawing brought with you" which will earn the winners a couple of large Krypto the Superdog and/or Bathound plushes. We also have retro plushes such as Dangermouse, Count Duckula and Captain Caveman etc if customers aren't too hot on the first two prizes!

Please spread the word for me and let people know about our launch day, it's going to be huge and we're going over the top to provide customers with not only a kick-ass opening day but also a kick-ass store to visit going forward.

To whet your appetites we also have 7 amazing life-size statues in store as well as two arcade machines, an X-box 360 pod (currently playing the brand new Super Street Fighter IV game) a PS3 (non-playable for shop floor customers but will be used to promote etc) and loads more. The store is over 2700 square foot and situated in High Chelmer shopping precinct in Chelmsford Essex. We are without a doubt the biggest and best store of our kind in the whole of Essex. Images will go up soon of the store launch, stock and guests.

I've created a new Facebook page and a new Twitter account purely for the store so if you're interested please join them using the links below.

Standard blog posts will continue here very shortly too. ;)

This store is so going to rock.
It's about time Chelmsford got it's own comic store. Long time in the making.

Cheers and best of luck :)
